Royston Elementary held art afternoons once a week for the month of May with a guest artist in most classrooms. Students showcased their work at an Art Show and Auction held in June. From the proceeds of the sale, a cheque for $750 has been issued to YANA. We give a special thank you to Dave Stevens, our guest auctioneer, and all our classroom artists for sharing their time and talents with us.

A special presentation was made to two deserving non-Rotarians at a recent Rotary Club of Strathcona Sunrise meeting. Charlotte and Michael Smale, former owners of Benjamin Moore House of Color in Courtenay, were named as Paul Harris Fellows in recognition of their many years of selling event tickets on behalf of community organizations including Rotary. Paul Harris Fellowships, named after the man who first started Rotary, were established in 1957 to honour and thank individuals for their ongoing support of the Rotary Foundation.
